Two cute brands, two cute packages. Here’s to my new self improvement programme.
A very cute bottle.

Archiving another very old project.
An old branding and web project that I wanted to share before archiving forever.
A great logo isn’t going to make a shitty product any less shitty, any more than a hard worker is going to make a bad boss a compelling leader.
Continuing my New year tidy up. Archive all old projects before the end of January – job done.
The brief was to create a scaleable, responsive platform to showcase recent branding projects. A bootstrapped solution can be found here: https://karstenrowe.com/projects/logo-wallboard/. Visit the website
Working hard archiving old projects.
Trying to get organised – found some very old work.
It’s a little rough round the edges, but I’ve posted some new logo design work. https://karstenrowe.com/projects/logo-wallboard/
Continuously striving for improvement – check out @Nutshell progress: www.dribbble.com/karstenrowe/projects/nutshell.
Three blogs that I regularly visit: Creative Review Advertising, design and visual culture. Little Big Details Your daily dose of design inspiration. Signal vs. Noise A publication about the web by 37signals.
For design inspiration, I regularly turn to Dribbble – the slightly exclusive “show and tell” site for designers. A short list of notable designers to follow on Dribbble: Ryan Putnam Kerem Suer Henning Gjerde Jonas Söder Geri Coady
Pretty printed items for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Paul Smith – ideas for my first logo. Start with a scribble.
A subtle update to a brilliant mark.
A little branding project for Scar Top Poultry. View Dribbble project
It’s been a long time since I’ve spent any considerable time in Adobe InDesign. Enjoying the experience, a few features that I would love to see in Photoshop.
A bright and bold design doesn’t have to be brash.
Learning to limit the numbers of colors in a design is important. The more color you add, the less prominence it has.
A few well crafted brand marks.
A clever & unique logo.
A simple website to showcase new design work. View work sample By no means a ground-breaking or innovative design and very much a work in progress, but having a point of reference is important.

Always a pleasure to see Nutshell in the wild.
Adding a few snaps to the NJS Equine Therapy logo & web design project.
The new karstenrowe.com brand roundel and the google+ circular avatar.
Digging around in old project folders… These designs never really saw the light of day so…
Branding yourself or own product is the most painful and indecisive process, yet the most satisfying one.
Sometimes books are best for inspiration.

Google being helpful again. Intuitive, easy yet descriptive – helping users along their way with minimum fuss.
An overwhelming amount of amazing design work – the @Dropbox team on @dribbble.
One premium package by Viktor & Rolf.
Collaborative sketching with clients is fun – found these very old comps this morning.
Sometimes colorless is best.
Another inspiring branding and print project.
Bold, bright and brilliant.

Another cute branding project – one that @hollydaniels_ will like.
Why is the Google Drive mark so pleasing?
Love this project for 7 Eleven – a great example of extending a brand’s visual identity.
